Foundstone | August 2-5

McAfee's UMA workshop is a proactive weapon to help you normalize your environment after a negative event has occurred. Hackers and cybercriminals have increasingly sophisticated tools and backdoor programs at their disposal to steal your intellectual property and expose sensitive information - all with the ability to cover their tracks by using malware. IT professionals charged with protecting the environment can be overwhelmed, causing attacks to be ignored or mistakenly diagnosed as a system or network problem. During this workshop we provide you with the techniques to identify, respond to, and recover from malware incidents. Malcontent and security holes exist in alarming numbers, and as a result the possible compromises on your network and applications are an unfortunate fact of corporate life. A total network-security plan includes the capability to resolve incidents after they occur. This comprehensive, technically detailed course enables you to successfully respond to malware incidents and reinforces your security posture.
